If you’re considering selling jewellery for cash, it can be difficult to know where to start. How do you choose the right gold or jewellery buyer? How do you know that you’re getting the most cash for your pieces? Most people who are looking to sell their jewellery are wondering the exact same thing. Deciding to sell your jewellery is a big step, so it’s wise to do your research and get prepared before you dive in.
To help you in selling your jewellery for cash, we’ve put together this list of expert tips:
- Determine What Type of Jewellery You’re Selling
Begin by reviewing the items of jewellery you’re interested in selling. Items made of gold or silver are a good place to start, even if they are broken or damaged – scrap precious metals can still be sold for cash. Diamond rings, earrings, bracelets and necklaces are also an excellent type of jewellery to sell. Antique or rare jewellery is also ideal for selling. However, keep in mind that most gold and jewellery buyers will not purchase gold or silver-plated pieces or costume jewellery.
- Make Sure You’re Ready to Sell
It can be tough to part with certain pieces of jewellery, such as a diamond ring that symbolizes a relationship, or treasured heirloom jewellery passed down from a family member. The sentimental value of your jewellery does play a role when you’re thinking about selling it. Think carefully before getting rid of your jewellery, and if you’re not quite ready, consider pawning it instead.
- Prepare your Jewellery for Sale
Repairing, cleaning or restoring your jewellery can have an impact on its value when it comes time to sell. One of the most basic steps you can take to improve the appearance of your jewellery is to clean it thoroughly and make it sparkle using a soft toothbrush, warm water and dish soap. If you’d prefer, you can leave the cleaning and repair to the professionals.
- Find an Experienced Jewellery Buyer
The key to getting top dollar for your jewellery is to meet with an expert appraiser who will value your jewellery properly and fairly. The gold buyer you choose should have a long history of excellent customer service and employ licensed appraisers so you can feel confident in selling your jewellery for cash.
